Teen Health Source
Teen Health Source is brought to you by Planned Parenthood Toronto. Teen Health Source is a sexual health information service run for and by youth. Whether teens need information about birth control, sexually transmitted infections, healthy relationships, or puberty, we provide information in a non-judgmental, sex-positive, pro-choice, and inclusive manner. Got a question or need a referral that you can’t find on our website? Ask us! We have trained teen volunteers waiting to serve you five days a week!
To help youth become informed so they can make choices that work for them, Teen Health Source offers live peer education services in addition to our comprehensive sexual health website. Our info line, now over 15 years old, offers teens the chance to speak one-on-one with a trained teen volunteer. Our new texting service also allows teenagers to reach us by phone. To contact us online, youth can use MSN instant messenger or email. Our volunteers have completed an extensive training course in sexual health and how to share this information with other teens. They can help find answers to questions and provide referrals to other services like clinics and community resources.
If you are between the ages of 13 and 19 and want to contact a Teen Health Source volunteer, please see our Ask Us page.
